Integrated Pad Scratch for flawless scratch performances.
The Pioneer DDJ SB3 DJ controller is designed for beginner DJs. Its easy-to-use controls help DJs learn proper technique, while it's advanced features like Pad Scratch emulate the sounds of DJ Jazzy Jeff, one of the all-time best DJs. The compact Pioneer DDJ-SB3 DJ controller uses Serato DJ Lite. The powerhouse controller offers 4-deck control in a lightweight, yet rugged design that's ideal for modern mobile DJs.
The DDJ-SB3 controller improves on the renowned DDJ-SB2, which gained a strong reputation with a wide range of DJs—from beginners to pros—thanks to its combination of professional features and easy portability. The interface of the DDJ-SB3 controller is even more intuitive to use than its predecessors, inheriting traits from the layouts of the top models in the DDJ-S series including the introduction of the dedicated play and cue buttons, and the independent Auto Loop button.
Thanks to the clear visual division between the player and mixer sections, the Pioneer DDJ-SB3 DJ controller feels natural to use. The low-latency, capacitive aluminum jog wheels create a quality look and feel that you'd expect to find in a professional DJ booth, all in a highly capable and portable package.
Developed from recordings of DJ Jazzy Jeff's performances, Pad Scratch emulates eight of his scratch techniques with the simple touch of performance pads built into the controller. Any track that you're playing or have cued up will be scratched, and the scratch speed automatically matches the track's BPM. So even if you don't know how to scratch, you can pull off professional scratch effects without breaking rhythm. Use the Pad Scratch feature alone or combine it with your own scratching on the other deck for limitless creative possibilities.
Smooth mixing on the Pioneer DDJ-SB3 is a breeze, thanks to another innovative feature called FX Fade, which allows you to reduce the volume and apply FX to a track at the same time. Whether you're an experienced DJ or a beginner, this enables you to smoothly transition to your incoming track, even if you’re playing with different genres of music. There are eight FX patterns to choose from on the DDJ-SB3, with two of each of the following types: high-pass filter, low-pass filter, loop playback and back spin.
Since the Pioneer DDJ-SB3 is powered by a single USB connection to a laptop, there's no need for a separate power supply, allowing mobile DJs to streamline their portable setup. That means you'll spend less time fumbling with cables and more time keeping the audience on their feet.
The DDJ-SB3 DJ controller includes a free download of Serato DJ Lite, formally known as Serato DJ Intro. As your skill level increases, the Pioneer DDJ-SB3 grows with you, thanks to its compatibility with Serato DJ Pro, which is available as a paid download. Both programs are powerful, flexible tools that feature customizable layouts and expansion options.
